. and it's the third footwear fiasco for the prime minister. she's certainly not the first woman to fall head over heels. see "sex and the city." remember carrie bradshaw's catwalk tumble? >> oh, my god. she's fashion roadkill. >> reporter: runways are littered with roadkill. wobbles, tumbles and wipeouts. at heathrow airport, lady gaga showed she wasn't the practical, rolling luggage type, and ended up rolling her ankles. but for the rest of us, why do we bother when we know it can end like this? the man behind those skyscraping red soles, christian louboutin, explained it to me like this. >> some women are not completely comfortable with their body. and even if you're not really comfortable with your body, you are comfortable with your feet. >> reporter: at the time, i was six months pregnant, so he proved it to me. hello, lovers! i think i just lost five pounds and ten years. fabulous. when you're talking seven-inch heels, practicality really isn't the point. >> i don't want these shoes to be comfortable shoes. >> reporter: they're not going to be birkenstocks. >> exactly. >> reporter
. that was the first photo you saw. hence the building at 155 hancock. yet as the years passed, san francisco city government came to realize the important value of protecting our architectural heritage not by resisting every legitimate attempt to replace decaying structures but by insisting that the new project permits ensure bleplding of new structures with their surroundings, comparing and contrasting the two buildings at 155 and 160, which are the two last photos i showed you, reveals a solution to the problem 4530 sanchez. the superior choice, i would assert for this board, is to follow the basic direction embedded by previous city agencies to approve buildings which maintain the architectural flow as in 160 hancock with adjoining properties and avoid the dissonance of the permits from an earlier period that permitted the construction of 155 hancock. this is the principle that should be applied to the decision before board regarding the matter at hand. throughout human history, cities have been defined and influenced by the quality of their architecture. great cities have achieved that stat
to other california cities but california does poorly to other states. the first finding we're asked to comment on is that we develop more than any other municipality in the u. s. do you know where we stand in there hasn't been a comprehensive analysis from what you've seen. >> yes. i want to clarify. we were asked to either agree, disagree partially, or disagree wholly by the instructions. in terms of the cup half full or empty when we disagree partially you can interpret that as a green partially. in terms of finding one, we just do not have the teat before us. there had not been a comprehensive data set. we would wanted to have a methodology to know what numbers we are looking at. san francisco is in terms of per capita funding arts is one of the highest in the country which is a great honor for our city. so with that i want to speak on a high level of of what the role of the report will be in terms of organizational change and improvement at the arts commission and then i'll at a high level go through some talking points in each of the five areas that we heard about in the report
the other night. >>> first to the news live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. a 21-year-old college student accused of trying to detonate a van carrying what he believed were explosives next to the federal reserve building in manhattan. quazi nafis is from bangladesh. authorities say he came to the u.s. on a student visa in january with the purpose of launching a terrorist attack and took classes in cybersecurity before trying to contact what he thought were al qaeda operatives. turns out those contacts were undercover agents with the fbi. wnbc's jonathan dienst is the chief investigative reporter and has the latest for us. jonathan. >> reporter: almost 24 hours after his arrest mohammed nafis remains behind bars without bail on the terror conspiracy counts, investigators say he tried to drive that van here to the federal reserve bank in lower manhattan and tried to set off a 1,000-pound bomb by remote control. but all along fbi, nypd and homeland security officials say they were on to him monitoring his every move and even provided through informants, some of the c
,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're at the 1978 price so we need to close the loopholes. we need to encourage small business growth. we can't live on facebook alone and make sure a small business owner with an idea city hall makes it easy to grow and start your business because that will drive a dynamic local economy and i think that's the key. >> all right. >> it seems as though we're all avoiding the question, and that is what new fees and what new taxes should we impose and i guess that's because we're all reluctant to do that and we feel the better way is figure out new sources of revenue for the city, so i agree that we need to do things that would enhance the quality of life in san francisco and draw more tourists and expand that center and we're turning away dollars to the city. we need a new facility and we don't have one currently for that and we
